[Stable Update i686] 2019-09-20 - Another very large set of updates

Hello i686ers!

This has been a while coming due to the number of rebuilds required. It updates pretty much everything, so strap in.

I strongly recommend applying this update in a TTY or screen session:

Available kernels

Series Version PAE
linux316 3.16.73 No
linux44 4.4.193 No
linux49 4.9.193 No
linux414 4.14.145 No
linux419 4.19.74 Yes

Full list of changes

Full list of changes available here (around 6350 updated packages).

Anyone who would like to help out testing the upstream packages, please read the archlinux32 thread for details about how they automate their testing process and how to get involved:


(running this in an archlinux32 VM would be fine, there will hopefully be a way of doing this directly from within manjaro32 in the future)


If you find manjaro32 useful please consider donating to, or helping out with, archlinux32. It's a small team taking on a huge project and any help will no doubt be very much appreciated.

Why aren't the available packages/package versions the same as x86_64?

archlinux32 packages are based on Arch packages but may need editing to build correctly. Builds of less-popular packages are lower priority.

Manjaro-specific packages may lag behind x86_64 because there aren't as many packagers. If you notice an important package is lagging please report it; at the moment it's only me packaging for i686:

I'm only packaging current LTS kernels. Any marked as EOL are dropped. I'll not be building the mainline kernel.

What about security updates?

I cannot guarantee timely security updates on x32-stable. If this is critical for you I recommend you switch to x32-testing or cherry-pick those packages from x32-testing or x32-unstable as they become available.

Something broke. Isn't this meant to be stable?

"Stable" means "infrequently changing", not "everything will work perfectly all the time". If you want it to mean everything works, you need to help test the things you're interested in.

What about installer images?

Yes, this is old and doesn't work particularly well. Because time.

What about x32-testing and x32-unstable?

These are already available, and I recommend you use x32-testing if you can to make sure testing is done.

x32-unstable should be used by the adventurous who want to try and find any issues before they impact other people. If you have multiple/many machines you really should run one of those on x32-unstable. However: expect breakage.

Any problems?

  • No issues, everything went smoothly
  • Yes there was an issue. I was able to resolve it myself. (Please post your solution)
  • Yes I am currently experiencing an issue due to the update. (Please post about it)

Known Issues and Solutions

Incompatible libdevmapper 1.02.164 (2019-08-27) and kernel driver (unknown version).

This happens every so often when there's a kernel ABI change. As far as I know it's harmless and can be ignored.

xfwm4 crashes when zooming

Not sure why it does this; there's no obvious reason.

Pacui fails to display package list

Options "3 Install packages" and "4 Remove packages and deps" don't work in pacui.

  • Workaround: Install fzf-git from AUR. Until resolved in this topic.

upower 0.99.11 fails to start

  • workaround: downgrade to upower 0.99.10-1.1

Xfce4-panel diappeared

Log out and relogin. The panel will be there, but without all widgets.

upower not working after latest update with linux316, linux318 and linux49

Hello, and again many thanks to your hard work

I prefer running linux kernel series 3 on my aged laptop. I was not happy with stopping the maintainence of linux318 because this kernel was compatible with libQt5Core.so.5. Linux has to be >=3.17. Just found a workaround to work with maintained linux316! Its the .note.ABI-tag in libQt5Core.so.5. Did 'strip --remove-section=.note.ABI-tag /usr/lib/libQt5Core.so.5.x.y' as root and voila Qt5 dependent manjaro-settings-manager is working with linux316. So I had been happy for a short time.
After the latest marathon update upowerd.service is not loading with linux316, linux318 and linux49. Its working fine with linux419. After stopping upowerd.service, starting upowerd manually (sudo /usr/lib/upowerd &) the deamon was working fine. Please need some help weather its a systemd or a upower related problem. I would like to stay with linux316 or linux318.

Thank you in advance

got two warning

Like in testing I have the xfwm4 zooming problem mentioned in known issues.

I also have an issue in both staple and testing when power management blanks the screen. When I unlock the screen I get a black screen and a cursor, I then have to reboot the system from tty2 (or restart lightdm).

Removed light-locker, xfce4-power-manager
Installed xscreensaver
